We are in the planning section of developing
wells from exploration well that is suspended using MLS. Our Project dept. will
build platform on the MLS site and come with us with question. If we drive
caisson pipe (i.e size 60"), would your MLS system tolerate the shock from
the piling operation? Will it damage the MLS connection?
We figure out that the shock will only exist in the surface (hammer) and in the tip of the caisson. In the seabed itself, since the soil is still soft and far from the shock source, the soil will absorb the shock and safe for the connection in MLS. However its only our assumption.
Really appreciate if the expert in here can share their insight on this matter. Thank You.
